Online Payment Fraud Detection and Prevention Apps

The relative ease, convenience and reach facilitated by online channels for businesses has led to the development of a broad set of digital services. The accessibility of the Internet and the ability to commit fraud remotely creates an appetizing prospect for criminals.

Meanwhile, the potential attack surface for miscreants is enormous; some 94 billion transactions were made for remote goods purchases in 2016, which is only a fraction of the total eCommerce landscape.

A new market study from Juniper Research has found that spending on online fraud detection and prevention (FDP) solutions will reach $9.3 billion by 2022 -- that's an increase of 22 percent over this year’s anticipated spend.

FDP Market Development

The research found that perceptions of high software costs, combined with relatively low awareness of effective solutions in the eCommerce space, were slowing service adoption. Nevertheless, it predicted that several factors would prove instrumental in driving the market forward.

According to the latest global market study by Juniper Research, the growing threat of insecure IoT (Internet of Things) devices would be key in driving FDP spend.

The evolution of IoT botnets from DDoS (Distributed Denial-of-Service) weapons aimed at fraud automation tools has influenced this trend, owing to a requirement for better customer verification tools.


Meanwhile, Juniper predicted the launch of 3DS 2.0 (3-D Secure 2.0) would have a similar impact. It claimed 3DS 2.0 would both reduce fraud and result in fewer basket abandonment, if merchants invested in authentication solutions as part of their FDP strategy.

Finally, it cited the upcoming PSD2 (revised payment services directive) and the move to open banking APIs in Europe, North America and Asia as a further driver.

"APIs expose a set of business logic rules, which by their nature are susceptible to abuse," said Steffen Sorrell, senior analyst at Juniper Research. "This will drive banks and service providers to greater emphasis on protecting those APIs."

Outlook for FDP Applications Growth

Juniper predicted that emerging markets, such as Latin America, Indian Subcontinent and Africa & Middle East would become key targets for banking and payments fraud.

Collectively, these regions will account for only 4 percent of global FDP spend in 2022. The research findings noted that stronger regulation to protect consumers as well as better consumer education in safer online practices were key issues to address.

Worldwide Contactless Payments will Exceed $1 Trillion

There's a huge upside opportunity for digital payment innovation in America. As of December 2017, Juniper Research estimates that only 9 percent of the total payment cards in circulation within the U.S. market was contactless-enabled -- this translates into just over 100 million cards. While this is a significant installed base -- around 13 percent of total chip cards issued in the U.S. market -- Juniper estimates that only 5.5 percent of the cards were actually used to make contactless offline point-of-sale purchases in 2017. This translates into about 6 million contactless cards used for payments. That's relatively low in comparison with more advanced markets such as Canada (60 million) and the UK (108 million). Contactless Payment Market Development Juniper Research forecasts that driven by payment cards and mobile wallets, in-store contactless payments will reach $2 trillion by 2020 -- that represents 15 percent of the total point of sale transactions.

Digital Identity Verification Market to Reach $16.7B

As more enterprise organizations embrace the ongoing transition to digital business transformation, CIOs and CTOs are adopting new technologies that enable the secure identification of individuals within their key stakeholder communities. A "digital identity" is a unique representation of a person. It enables individuals to prove their physical identity during transactions. Moreover, a digital identity is a set of validated digital attributes and credentials for online interactions -- similar to a person's identity within the physical world. Individuals can use a 'digital ID' to be verified through an authorized digital channel. Usually issued or regulated by a national ID scheme, a digital identity serves to identify a unique person online or offline. Digital Identity Systems Market Development Complementary to more traditional forms of identification, digital identity verification systems can enhance the authenticity, security, confidentiality, and efficiency of

Software-Defined Infrastructure: The Platform of Choice

As more organizations adapt to a hybrid working model for their distributed workforce, enterprise CIOs and CTOs are tasked with delivering new productivity-enabling applications, while also seeking ways to effectively reduce IT cost, complexity, and risk. Traditional IT hardware infrastructure is evolving to more software-based solutions. The worldwide software-defined infrastructure (SDI) combined software market reached $12.17 billion during 2020 -- that's an increase of 5 percent over 2019, according to the latest market study by International Data Corporation (IDC). The market grew faster than other core IT technologies. The three technology pillars within the SDI market are: software-defined compute (53 percent of market value), software-defined storage controller (36 percent), and software-defined networking (11 percent). "Software-defined infrastructure solutions have long been popular for companies looking to eliminate cost, complexity, and risk within their data cente
